to In1 larip'ly rcspounililc fur the llnd
which prodiii'ed the jiienent excitement,
It an old time miner with experience

origin nf the present excitement" the
"Well, It was along last spring
when there ivn an excitement nhout

ami I allowed them to him and asked
him to c Sol Camp about them, an
they are both experienced mining men
and were thoroughly familiar with
Cripple Creek and its oren. They both
came back t me and e decided that
wheio such ore had been found there
was more of It," said Mr. Conley.
"They wanted me to go out with
them, but I told them my rheumatism
would not permit, and they went, lie
lieving as I did that it was rich tellu
"Camp sent sample to Denver for
unsay and the results conllrmoil our be

mlneralologists disagree over their
nixies for the ore. That wiih the case
in Cripple Creek, too, until the miner
proved tho ground, and so it will b"
here. It does keep back capital but in
tho end it will be cen we are right.
"Now 1 nm not talking on any stock

stock for mile in our enterprise. We
have tied up three claim extending
along the mother vein for 4."00 feet
and there is not a share of our stock

are certain this rein will broaden out
with depth, being narrow and Hat on
the top and extending outward oa both

tate to say that surface conditions are

and say the country i more mineral

Mr. Con ley went on to any that he
would only advise those who were fa

that he thought tho best direction for

COPPER SALES RUN
Of MO 0100
Company Disposes of
There hate lieen some extraordinary
sales of cupper during the past week
or ten il.iy, and the aggregate will to

Huston News llureaii.
The I'nited Metal Celling Co., dur
ing the pat eight days, has alone dis
posed of (111,000,000 pounds of copper,
selling -7,000,000 pounds in one day.
This copper was sold at prices ranging
between l.'L.'O ami J3. SO cents and was
very largely of the electrolytic brand.
.Some of this copper has been Hold for
delivery as far nhead a next .March,
although none of the larger producers
care to sell in quantity beyond the Hrnt
of the year or, for that matter, beyond
The United Metal Selling Company
has nn spot copper on hand today nod
for that matter has very little if any
;i0 day copper to offer at prices now
Orders which have been placed in
tlie past week did not come from a few
large consumer, but from a very large
number of manufacturer, large and
Charles I'. Ilrooker has bought quite
heavily and tvheii he entered the mark
et a few day ago hi action quickly
became known and spread like wild
lire among the smaller consumers.
These consumers argued that, if a
prominent member of the Itepublicau
national committee anil the largest in
ditidual buyer of copper iu the coun
try, had concluded that it wa time to
buy copper, that wiih good enough for
them and Die lenuli tta that order?
poured In by wire and telephone in a
milliner which has not been witnessed
for many months.
Calumet & Heela and Phelps, Hodge
& Co. have maCe sales in considerable
quantity, so that, with the amount Mild
by other selling interest, including thn
companies which sell direct, it !
quite within reason to estimate the
total sales during the past ten day at
between ".V'OO.OOO and 100,000,000

QUESTION OF 100
SEEMS TO DEE!
Great Problem Continues
To Puzzle Miners
( Mining World
One nf the most texation- problems
that ha long delicd an intelligent, sat
isfactory solution, i tin- equitable pay
ment of untie labor. Cnionists nnd
economists of no me.in intellectual at
tniumeui have heeu balked time and
Legislation that reduces Hie hours
of work to ten or eight per days, and
raises wages, while it exhibits the
spirit of humanity that recognizes man
need rest and proper sustenance to
make him a better worker tomorrow,
sometime proves to lie an abuse rath
er than a benefit. We are thinking of
the workman who takes undue advan
tage of hi employer by wilfully ne
glecting his duty, ti ml when called to
account appeal to organized labor for
support iu the campaign against cap
italist in general.
To legislate in fat or of an undesir
able element that is known to be the
cnife of discontent in any mining
camp no matter how good may be the
properties worked or how liberal the
management needs to be severely crit
irised. Likewise when the senatorial
chairs are filled by men presumably
choeu by mid for the benefit of the
people but in reality are supported by
law breaking combinations of capital,
then any legislation In favor of such
employers is grossly unjust. The only
chord of harmony between employer
and employe can be that of fair play
or a square deal.
Wn;e of miners, like the salaries of
the official of tlie company operating
the property, should be regulated by
the earnings from the product mar
keted. This idea met with favor iu
tlie Mutto district early in 1007, when
the employes nf Hie mine and smelters
agreed to a compromise increase of
wages, tlie scale to be governed by the
price of copper. At that time the min
ers were receiving .'I.7.1 per day, al
though the union had fixed the rate at
$.1.0U. Tho agreement igned for five
year wa that when copper sold nt 18
cent or more per pound, the miner
were to get $4 per day, and when the
price of copper dropped below IN cents
the wage wn to be 43.50.
The fact that not only copper, but
all other metals are selling today at
much lower price than they did a year
or no ago, without encouraging con
sumption iu the face of general busi
nes depression, suggest that the earn
ing of mine nnd metallurgical work
have been cut rather deeply. The sit
uation ut present 1 not as aggrarnting
a it wa a few month ago, judging
Inr the reemployment of labor and
there is evidence that a further im
provement will lie noticed after the
In practically all brunches of the
mining indtmtry wage nnd general
expanses linv bees readjusted to con
form to the unusual economic condi
tions Hint prevail. Miner asH rule
ure getting about what they did before
the Loom years of 1000 nnd 1907, when
they were encouraged to demand a sub
stantial increase in wages. There is
u jMisslbillty, however, that wages will
b higher in it year or two, provded,
of course, that prosperity for th em
ployer is not delayed too long.

much Interest ami caused quite a rush
to the new field. Tho new find is
about four miles rast nf Gleason near
the vicinity of what is known us Sugar

gold were found, and further work has
encouraged the belief that a rich gold
field has been found. T.in country is (ill
located by the projectors and miner
who were attracted from Gleason, Lead'

is thought development will open up
A peculiarity of the section is the
fact that ore similar iu chnracter to
